  1. What light / code does it get stuck on and what mobo do you have ?
  2. I will use 2 x 8 pin all the way from now on anyways. Just wanted to give people a small eye opener ?
  3. Yes it was watercooled. I had to install the Vega card again since the 2080ti I got didn't work. The company that installed the water block messed up... so much for trying to save time letting other people do the job lol. Anyways, I just did an auto overclock since I don't remember my old OC numbers. After the auto overclock and during a Time spy run it used 211W at max peak according to the Radeon Software.
  4. CableMod , I don't remember if it was the Mesh or Flex type When one cable turnes into two cables I call it a splitter , because the cable splits ?. But you are probably right ?
  5. I'm just posting this as a heads-up to everyone using a cable splitter. I work with electronics everyday and should have known not to use a splitter to power my gpu while overclocking. The reason I used it to begin with is because it was the only cable I had at hand at the moment and I thought " I'll replace it later when I start turning stuff up " . So yeah... I forgot all about it until I was taking my PC apart before Xmas. I'll let the picture speak for itself. Corsair HX850i powering a OC Vega 64 card with a single 8 pin to 2x8 pin splitter.
  6. Any led lights like boot, vga, cpu, dram or postcodes it get's stuck on when it tries to start ?
  7. Hi everyone. It's time to upgrade again and I cant decide were to start. Should I upgrade my CPU or GPU first? I mainly use my computer for gaming and occasionally some streaming. I almost ordered a new GPU last night but thought I should check with you guys first to get a second ( or more ) opinion. It stands between getting a 2080TI or the Ryzen 9 3900x This is what I have today Mobo : x370 Asus ROG Crosshair VI Extreme CPU : Ryzen 7 1800x OC to 4.1 GHz GPU : Asus ROG Strix Vega 64 Ram : 32Gb 3200MHz G.Skill Trident Z Royal PSU : Corsair HX850i
  8. So I have a game with the option to turn on DX12. Without DX12 enabled my system runs at around 65c. With DX12 enabled my system spins up the fans and the temp's go up and stops at around 85c I'm running a full water cooling setup with overclocked Ryzen 1800x 4GHz and a overclocked Vega64 with a slight undervolting. so my question is , do DX12 makes your components run warmer or is there something wrong ?
  9. If you have been thinking about the i5 7600k I guess your budged is around $300, is that correct ?
  10. Updated my loop. I had clear petg in my first loop and a single cpu water block and radiator Current parts : Case : Thermaltake VIEW 71 TG. Motherboard : ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Extreme. CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 1800X. GPU : ASUS RX Vega64 STRIX OC 8GB. RAM : 64GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance 2666MHz. Fan's : 3 x Corsair ML140 PRO rgb and 3x Corsair ML120 PRO rgb Storage : 1 x Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD and 1 x 2TB Crucial MX500 SSD PSU : Corsair HX850i with cablemod cables. Custom water cooling with hard tubing. Ek monoblock and GPU block. XSPC fittings and radiators. Bitspower tubes. Orange because of Ryzen ?
  11. Hi all. I can't deside on my fan directions for my top fans. I want positiv air pressure because the case have an air gap on almost 10mm between the glass panels and the case frame. The case is the TT view 71. In the front I have a 280 radiator with 2 x 140mm fans pulling air in. I have one 140mm exhaust fan. The top rad is a 350 with 3 x 120mm fans. I kind of want to have those to pull air in too to get a relativ dust free case, but will it get too hot in there? What do you guys think? I'm not done building so swapping the fans around is easy now.
